Terms of employment: Permanent, full time.
Job location: 510 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, V6B 0M3
Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is storage for the Internet. Through the use of pioneering techniques in distributed computing, developers are able to durably store their data on Amazon's proven computing infrastructure to achieve virtually limitless storage capacity at minimal cost. Amazon S3 provides a simple interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, secure, fast, inexpensive infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.
We're looking for technology leaders for the largest storage service on the internet. This position is perfect for you if you're interested in creating tools and automation so that engineers can be as hands-off as possible. We want our service to be as autonomous as possible and that can only be done by having bright individuals who understand how to think big, simplify solutions to complex, never before seen problems; all while ensuring that the customer continues to have the best experience possible.
You should be an engineer who is capable of building and improving systems tooling and scripts, potentially written in Python, Java, Go, Ruby, or other languages. You should also have a good understanding of Linux, networking and general knowledge of cloud services. As always, at Amazon you should have a drive to create the best customer experience possible, with the customers being both AWS customers and the other engineers at AWS who will benefit from the automation and tooling you create.
Roles within S3 are much more dynamic than a traditional enterprise. Engineers equally participate in ops tasks including customer outreach and the on-call rotation while Systems Engineers build software and take part in new feature development. We find that this overlap of roles helps to ensure that the engineers who own software can also experience it in production and are motivated to actively maintain it.
Salary range: $87,506 to $125,100/yr commensurable with experience.
• MS Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field, or relevant work experience.
• 5+ years experience deploying, managing, automating, and optimizing Linux Systems
• Solid 5+ years experience with Linux OS internals, server architectures, and disk technologies.
